Here’s a recap of the interesting points and miles news from this week:

Southwest bonus

500 Bonus Southwest Points: If you have a Southwest credit card like the personal or business Rapid Rewards Premier cards you can earn 500 bonus points when you make a purchase with it through the Rapid Rewards Shopping portal by December 31, 2012. Only one bonus per Rapid Rewards cardmember account. Shopping portals are a great way to earn bonus points on purchases anyway, so if you were going to buy something through Southwest’s portal, you might as well get even more of a bonus, and even if you weren’t but you have one of their credit cards, you could always try to find something super cheap to buy just to get the bonus.

Hilton Friends and Family Rates.

Save up to 50% with Hilton Friends and Family Rates: Hilton is offering a 50% discount for stays now through January 7th, 2013. You’ll save 50% at Waldorf Astoria, Conrad, Hilton, DoubleTree by Hilton, Embassy Suites, and Hilton Grand Vacations and 30% off at Hilton Garden Inn, Hampton, Homewood Suites, and Home2 Suites. All these stays would be eligible to earn Hilton HHonors Points. While this is a friends and family, it is available to the public regardless of if you know anyone that works for Hilton or not. Rates are subject to availability, so the full discount might not be available on all dates during the promo period, but if your plans are flexible, check around to see if there are any dates that work for you at the properties you’re interested in. If you have holiday travel plans coming up and are still in need of a hotel room, then be sure to check out these rates as they could save you a nice chunk of change.

 

Earn 1500 bonus SkyMiles with purchase of headphones.

Earn 1500 bonus SkyMiles with purchase of headphones.

1,500 Delta SkyMiles For Purchasing Bose Headphones: Bose is giving away 1500 SkyMiles with the purchase of Bose QuietComfort 15 Acoustic Noise Cancelling headphones. The retail price for these headphones is $299.95. You must book through the link to earn the bonus miles. Please allow 6 to 8 weeks after completed qualifying activity for SkyMiles to be posted to your Delta SkyMiles account. As aside note, I own the Bose QC15 headphones and don’t travel without them. These are a great gift idea for the frequent traveler in your life. Even if you are sitting near a screaming baby, these bad boys will drown-out most noise. Sometimes I even sleep with them on with no music just to drown out ambient cabin noise. Overall, they are one of the few items I don’t travel without.

40% off Everything at the W Hotel Store: Currently, The W Hotel Store, is offering 40% off on everything in the store including the mattresses which are one of my personal favorite hotel beds. The great thing is the mattress comes with a 10-year warranty, and there is free shipping on the mattresses. You can choose between ordering just a mattress or a mattress with box spring. The store also sells the W Feather Bed for those who really want to invest in a high-end sleeping experience. Besides the beds, you can also buy W Hotel bedding which is featured in the different hotels, apparel, electronics, books, bathroom amenities and travel accessories. As a reminder, if you use your Starwood Amex, you will earn double Starpoints on this purchase. Just enter the code W4K9X at check out and the discount will be applied. (Hat Tip: Dan’s Deals)

    Thanks for the Hilton tip. I had a room booked at IAH for a late returning flight and I was able to save $50 using Friends & Family.

    W Store 40 % is not off (everything) – the promo code doesn’t work for the beds or electronics. If anyone gets them to honor it please let me know.

    My husband has a personal SW cc and is the primary cardholder on a business SW cc. I am a secondary cardholder on the business account. Do you think it would work to go through the mall with his personal card for his Rapids Rewards acct. and use my business card with my RR acct. # ?

  • Lisa W

    Thanks! I have two upcoming Hilton trips and was able to get a discount on both!

    They also have that promo where if you text (as a new member), you get a total of 750 points. 250 instantly and 500 additional after 3 months of subscription the their email newsletters.

    I’ve been thinking of no longer flying SWA but when I saw this on their brochure bundle during one of my recent flights, I just had to bite. So I texted and enrolled with a different email address. Now I have 750 points (this was 3+ months ago) plus I shifted all my flying and rental car activity into this new account since then.
